    Same goes for a family member that has one.

    BTW, you might want to set this up as an actual poll....

    EDIT: Oh good, you did now ;)

    Bought 4Gb, sold it on ebay, and bought the 8gb, One of my 8gb had a negative black screen issue and I sold it on ebay (I did post that it had the issue and still people bid like crazy). Now I have my good 8gb unlocked with 1.1.1 firmware on auction to get my 16gb. When The iphone with 3g comes out, I'll sell the 16gb on ebay, and i can bet i can get more than the $500 i'll pay for it. You gotta love ebay.

    I bought mine on July 6, exactly one week after iPhones release. I replaced it about 3 weeks ago at the Apple store because from day one, the volume would fluctuate on it's own. I finally got tired of it after 6 months and I exchanged it for a brand new one. If it had not been for that problem, I would still been using it.

    Of all the people I know with iPhones (probably 15), including myself, only 1 has replaced his iPhone. He replaced it because the phone's speaker stopped working (the earpiece), but after swapping it, he later found out it was a bug in the phone. (Well documented bug of removing the headphones and sometimes the phone stops making sounds and you cannot hear a caller.)

    I replaced mine due the battery performance after one of the updates.

    8GB - flawless from day one!

    (Only issue ever experienced is I did have to use the restore feature once after uploading 5.5G's of MP3's and somehow got some data corruption)

    Need to caveat my twice vote:

    The first time Apple replaced it b/c I was complaining about REALLY poor signal reception. When the replacement demonstrated the same problem I went back and they told me to replace the SIM card. Replacing the SIM fixed the issue so there was likely nothing wrong with the original phone.

    But the replacement phone's battery life was ridiculously short, so Apple replaced the replacement.

    In the end I have had the phone replaced twice, and probably didn't really a replacement at all.

    The post is coming from inside the house!
    I bought on iDay, replaced once, last week with no questions asked at the Apple Store in Jacksonville.

    I had a bubble on the screen and, I think, some bleaching on the display.
